Dating 101: Out-of-the-box date ideas!

So, my friend (let’s call her Britney) was dating this guy. He was everything she could ask for. He was cool, smart, talented, you know, what most girls want. BUT he had a really bad sense of dating. Dating for him was watching TV at home, and that’s it!

I know. I like to watch TV once in a while, but when you are dating, you want to learn more about this persons’ interests and passion. Dating is a game! It needs different scenarios, different locations and, of course, different adventures.

Therefore, I decided to compile a list of out-of-the-box date ideas to keep your dating interesting and new every day!

1.Arcades: $10-$20 USD per person

I honestly didn’t believe how much fun it is! My date turned out to be the geekiest (cute) person in the world while playing this.

2. Theme Restaurants: $60 per person

3. Gun Range: $10-$20 per person

4. Amusement Park: $50-$60 per person

5. Concerts in venue or parks: $20-$100 per person/ Parks are usually FREE

6. Rodeo (If there are rodeos in your city): $18-$30

7. Bowling (Obviously): $10-$20 per game

8. ABC dating- Varies

It means that every time you are going on a date, you choose something with that letter. Example:

1st date: Aquarium

2nd date: Bowling

3rd date: Concert

Etc, etc
